Our family group stayed here whilst two of our party took part in the Llanberis Brutal Iron man event. It took about 20 minutes to drive to Llanberis but at 6 o'clock in the morning the roads were empty. In the evening we supported the cyclists in the double event just outside in the front garden which was exciting for...

Amazing cottage. Very social, spacious, clean, oversized agreed party with Nia. Built a rapport with Nia without meeting. Very helpful, friendly, accomodating and informative. Highly recommended. So nice to not have tv and limited Internet. Shuts the world out whilst I celebrated my bday with party of cyclists, walkers, eaters and drinkers..... amazing place. Hope to return.

How to get there
Driving to Nant Gwynant is certain to get you into the holiday mood, as from every direction the scenery is fabulous. <BR><BR>If coming from the North, our recommended route is via Llanberis. Leave the A55 coastal trunk road near Bangor, then follow signs to Llanberis. Keep going straight through the village,then the road starts to climb eventually reaching Pen y Pass, a starting point for Snowdon hikes. The views over Llyn Gwynant and the Nant Gwynant valley as you descend the other side are splendid indeed. Turn right at the Pen Y Gwryd hotel (where Sir Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing trained for their Everest ascent). There's a lay-by part way down which makes a for good photo stop: one one side you have the Snowdon Horseshoe, to the left you look along the valley to... more
